Perfect little Burgundy Gite

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Gite la Vigne for a week and couldn't fault it. Geoff and Esme gave us a warm welcome and couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. They had very kindly prepared a salad supper, bottle of vino and pastries on our arrival, just what we needed after a long journey. The Gite was spotless and there was everything we needed. It was so well equipped and felt like home from home. The location was stunning and only a short drive to the nearest Town, Saulieu, which had a good choice of restaurants, bars and shops. There are so many places to visit in the beautiful area and very easy to get to, not even an hour to the vineyards. Our hosts were extremely accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them, yet they respected our privacy. We would recommend this little piece of paradise very highly. When it was time for us to leave, with slightly heavy hearts, we felt we were saying goodbye to new friends. We would return without any hesitation.

Our haven in France

  • 5 of 5
For the third time we had a great stay at Gite La Vigne in Reglois. Esme and Geoff are the perfect hosts - available when needed but not intrusive.
Improvements have been made since our last stay: a new TV, a new double bed and the floor by the kitchen has been levelled. The wifi is working well. The gite is clean and in good repair.
On arrival we look forward to the meal that Esme has prepared and to see what other goodies await us.
The balcony is a great place to have breakfast or to sit and read, with views across to woodlands.
The nearest town is Saulieu and we were fortunate to be able to attend both a vintage car rally and a food festival at either end of our stay.
The city of Dijon is worth a visit, but we prefer the smaller town of Beaune.
This year we particularly enjoyed visiting Guédelon, where a medieval castle is being built from scratch, travelling on an old "Picasso" diesel railcar from Toucy and attending a medieval fair in which the whole town participates at Semur-en-Auxois.
We tended to cook at the gite in the evenings but found some good places for lunch in Saulieu, Beaune, Dijon and Autun.
There is plenty of opportunity to go walking in the area along country roads, footpaths or beside some of the lakes.
Would we return to Gite La Vigne at Reglois? Of course we would and we're looking forward to it. For us it's the ideal place to recharge the batteries.

Lovely Gite, Friendly & Helpful Owners

Lovely Gite, Friendly & Helpful Owners
  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with all aspects of our stay, from the pre booking conversation with Esme onwards.
Esme dealt with us in a friendly, organised and professional manner concerning stuff like booking, deposit & local info. The Gite at Reglois was as described on the Owner's Direct website and within their own website.
We wanted a quiet unspoilt location from which we could explore some of the Morvan National Park and other parts of Burgundy and the location was perfect being reasonably close to Lac de Settons, a beautiful lake where we enjoyed picnics and swimming.
The Gite is well equipped, has a lovely atmosphere and the rear balcony provides a perfect place for breakfast, lunch or supper. There are sunbeds and a larger table below but the balcony has room for 1 sunbed, the table and 2 chairs.
Esme has been very thoughtful about kitchen equipment, there are even a couple of tupperware containers for picnic food.
Whilst the smaller shops in Soulieu are OK, the Attac supermarket is much more useful providing a wide range of food and hardware. But remember it's closed on Sundays so much better to make the effort to pop in on the way down and stock up with the basics.
We visited a number of places, a standout for us was the charming town of Autun set with hills as a backdrop.
We really enjoyed meeting Esme & Geoff and getting to know them a bit, they couldn't be more welcoming and helpful, perfect hosts.

Gite la vigne

  • 4 of 5
Beautifully situated in the Morvan National Park, this Gite is perfect for a couple or a family with a child. The Gite was very well presented and was well equipped for summer or winter. Although just outside the main Burgundy wine growing region, the vineyards are within an easy drive. The owners are hospitable and caring and we were warmly welcomed.

Wonderful Gite

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay and the gite lived upto expectations being well equipped with everything you need (including an actual oven!). The hosts were very friendly and provided a meal and wine upon our arrival. The attention to detail by the owners even extended to enquiring if we had any food allergies prior to our holiday. The surrounding countryside is peaceful and quiet, but with lots of attractions within reach. We would certainly recommend this gite.
